Whose makeup is that? Gorgeous. And are you guys subscribers to the "balmoral = dress, blucher = casual?" Because that black pair could dress up some slacks, I'd think.

I agree.  I love whiskey, and I especially love that short wing.  I don't think I would get rid of that one.

 

The possibility of you selling whiskey longwings in my size makes my wallet very nervous, might need to block you for a while.

If you were an 8 barrie Mr.Clemson, i would gladly take those shortwings off your hand.

Thanks. Going to wear them already all over this city on my last day here.

Yeah I just happened to see a post here about the pre-order and jumped on it. They didn't have slots for specific sizes in this case, I think they just had a certain number of total pairs available (18-24 maybe) and they let you pick whatever size you wanted as long as you got in before they ran out of slots. I requested a size 12B, which I know they would never order unless someone requested it. I kinda wish I got the whiskey as well because who knows when I'll get a chance to get a pair of those in my size.

Thanks for the heads up! Working on deciding whether to finally go for the olive commander jacket. Sales associate may be able to help me with a discount.

Interesting. I've heard the converse argument on this thread made very vigorously. I prefer the compromise: go for both.

I have these boots. I like them very much. I think the quality appears to be better than Alden (no random loose threads, proper punching on brogueing, excellent welting). Very sturdy looking. Color 8 cxl looks amazing in sunlight. So just buy them already. FWIW, a young girl hit on me downtown this past weekend (this doesn't happen a lot, as I'm a nerdy professional in my late 30s, very happily married and not looking for trouble) and started the convo by commenting on the Vibergs. I know it wasn't my suave look, because the outfit was nothing special and I had my head buried in my work laptop. Color 8 is king--in shell and, I guess, in cxl. For the record, the phone number she gave me went immediately into the recycling bin. Maybe I should've told her to check in with @bkotsko . He's a cool guy!

Does anyone know off-hand if w/ the Brooks Brothers 40% coupon that went out in mailers last week whether you can pick up Cordo if your local store doesn't stock the shoe? The coupon is meticulous about mentioning it's only good in-store - not online and not for "phone orders" - but if I walk in my B&M BB, shake money at the SA and say I want cap-toe bluchers in #8, WILL IT HAPPEN?

I would keep the Shortwing personally. But that is super tough. The Shortwing are harder to come by.

Alden Natural CXL Wingtip Boots (with Brass Eyelets and Hooks). Maiden voyage. They were factory seconds from TheShoeMart. Still no clue which store commissioned them...

Yeah, I kind of went crazy with the socks... All my brown ones were in the wash and I figured that no one would see them (plus I had a blue shirt on)! :-)
